hi

i have looked in all of the web-site that you mentioned.

90% of them are not wholesalers at all.they are just pretending to be.

the last 10% are really wholesalers but you cant compit with their prices on ebay.

you are always giving customers the answer that if they buy bulks than they will get a better price but this suggestion take the air out of being a
dropshipper.

Drop shipping is really more expensive because you are not benefiting from bulk discounts. You are also charged a small fee per shipment to cover the drop shipper's handling costs. Combined, these additional costs can make it more difficult to compete on eBay.

Drop shipping is particularly suited to people just starting a business without much capital to invest. It’s also a great option for retailers looking to expand the inventory of their existing businesses without the risk of acquiring more inventory.

However, seeing as the online retail market is very competitive, at some point, business owners will need to buy a significant proportion of their inventory in bulk to ensure that they get maximum profit margins on each item.

Another thing, electronics is actually one of the most competitive markets online. The electronics industry has always run on very low margins from
wholesalers to end users and marketplaces like eBay have only tightened the margins even further. Most electronics sell at the wholesale price or below wholesale on eBay. That's how intense the competition is. The point is, the number of sellers present in the electronics market is deceiving. It's much more difficult to make money in this market than it appears. If you do wish to stick with the electronics industry, then we suggest you -

* Use liquidation suppliers to get bulk lots at prices well below wholesale.
* OR: Purchase from wholesalers in very large quantities to drive the wholesale price down.
* Increase your feedback and get powerseller status BEFORE entering the electronics market. This will give you more visibility in the search.
* Sell via your own website or your eBay store if possible, as buyers generally pay more from these venues than eBay.
* Add third-party extras and up-sells to your orders. These will help you bump up your margins to a much more acceptable level.
* Better still - consider selling accessories for electronics rather than electronics themselves. Accessories are very popular, have less competition, cost less to ship and have much greater margins.
